​Swansea's Gomis plays down equalling Premier League scoring record

Bafetimbi Gomis will join a Premier League elite and break a Swansea City record if he scores against Watford on Saturday, reports Sky Sports.

If he finds the back of the net at Watford, he will have scored in five straight matches at the start of the season - a feat only previously achieved in the Premier League by Micky Quinn (Coventry City), Ian Marshall (Ipswich Town), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) and Jose Antonio Reyes (Arsenal).

However, the 30 year old striker is more concerned with helping Swansea collect three points against Watford on Saturday than in personal records.

"It is always great to equal and break records, but the most important thing is for Swansea to get the three points every weekend," he told the club's website.

"The most important thing is that Swansea are winning games, playing well and are in a good position in the league."
